Some Sightings in the Geelong Regions

 On Saturday,  I believe I saw a Tawny Grassbird in the scrub between Corio Bay and the Cheltham Saltworks at Moolap.

According to my Simpson and Day guide, their southern limit is along the coast somewhere up near the Murray River. So basically, not into Victoria.

Have any sightings of the Tawny Grassbird been recorded for Victoria? Especially around the Geelong region?  

Also, on the Sunday, I went to Pt Edwards, St Leonards,  where the scrub was alive with Silvereyes, White-browed Scrubwrens, Grey Fantails, and Fairy Wrens. A Grey Shrike Thrush was also seen.

On walking towards the end of the point, over the newly constructed boardwalk, two Spiny Cheeked Honeyeaters where sitting on some exposed branches giving ideal views.  Another single spiny cheek was seen further along the path.

There were also quite a few Singing Honeyeaters around the Queenscliff area.
